Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, purl, cast on, bind off
  • Knitting in the round

Pattern Description:

I knit a lot of hats for charities which are looking for a hat that will really keep the ears warm. I have tried a lot of patterns but just hadn't found one that met this criteria AND was easy to memorize but could be varied for interest and best use of scrap yarn. Oh, and I also didn't want to have to keep track of how many stitches to cast on for different sizes. Asking a lot, wasn't I?

This stretchy hat knits up quickly. It fits a wide range of sizes from kindergarteners to adults. The longer length and wide turned-back garter stitch cuff keeps the ears cozy in even the coldest weather. Leave it plain or add some stripes to use up your scraps. Best of all it is a very simple, easy to remember pattern! So, won't you join me in making some Warm My Ears Hats for your favorite charity?
